Zaytoon Has Arrived

After countless delays and a near two year gestation period, Middle Eastern sandwich shop Zaytoon is finally ready to meet the neighborhood.  We happened to walk by the spot on Valencia between 22nd and 23rd tonight as they were celebrating their grand opening (that’s one of the two Palestinian owners sitting there on the left) and managed to sample a bit of their falafel.

The texture was perfect, with a slightly crispy outer shell coating a soft yet firm center.  Both the falafels and the tahini are made in-house every day, and are featured on a menu along with lamb and chicken shawarma, available on either pita or lavash for $7-8.  Give it a try yourself to see how it compares to Truly Med and Old Jerusalem!
